last nights game was great and very surprising. as a baseball fan i can only hope for all the series to go 7 games. hopefully this will be a wake up call for planet zito. 20+ million salary and he's not even on the post season roster.

As a life-long Red Sox fan who knows the frustration of waiting forever to finally win--and suffering those grabbing-defeat-from-the-jaws-of-victory moments as the 2002 Giants did against the Angels in Game 6 of the WS (you Giants fans know--up 5-0 in the 7th only to lose? Ouch)--I am pulling hard for the underdog Gints this year...they've never won a WS since moving to the Bay....now's the time (plus--I'll root for anyone wh can beat the Yankees).

also: the Giants are SO much more lovable now that Bonds is gone!

I feel the same way about the Giants without Bonds. Im a long time Giants fan. Never was a Bonds fan.

I've got your back ringo. Left coasters don't know how to play baseball ('72-74 Athletics notwithstanding....)

I spent 11 years just across the state line in Wilmington. Our Little League team would go to a Phillies game every year. I can remember games at Connie Mack (yes I am dating myself a bit) and the Vet. I still have all my 7-11 Baseball trading cups from '71 and '72 with the full Phillies team - Larry Bowa, Dick Ruthven, Wayne Twitchell, Greg Luzinski, Del Unser, Rick Wise, Larry Hisle, etc. Even though the Detroit Tigers are my favorite team, the Phils are my NL team (you are allowed to have a favorite team in each league - my rule).

We can only hope the Phillies make it to the WS again and that there is an early snow - remember when the polite and considerate crowd at the Vet threw snowballs at Santa Claus during an Iggles game?

Snowballs at Santa Freakin Claus.......are you kidding me?

I'm not a Philly native so it doesn't date you with me particularly :)

That was Ed Rendell, wasn't it? :) Seriously he did get caught throwing snowballs at an Eagles game if I recall. (our then-mayor, now governor ...)

That's Fluffyans for ya. "Polite" and "crowd at the Vet" aren't often used in the same sentence.

Looks like you're outnumbered RLO! And remember, we've squarely got lovable Bobby on OUR side now...he and I agree on everything, as you know, and I've always thought the world of him. He can sing the Nat'l Anth like NOBODY else, and if you want, you can search on all my old posts to see how it's been nothing but love and kisses twixt Bobby and me here at the Forum since I started--never a bad thing to say, and we have to have a unified front when it comes to rooting for the underdog Giants (or so I am told by baseball fans). Thus, I am now Bob's # 1 fan.

Ah, well--that wasn't so hard as I thought it'd be.

nothing against the phils. they have a great team. i'm 142% sure they make it to the series again this year. but what was up with that lady in the front row that kept standing up and waving her towel every time the reds guy threw a pitch? i'm all for rooting for your team, but that seemed kinda bush league to me.

As many remember from the Opening Day hoopla in '93, when Jerry and Weir and Welnick sang the National Anthem before the game, Jerry was asked if he was a Giants fan. In classic Garcia style, he replied, "Oh sure, you know, like when they're doin' good, like everybody else.'
Well they're doin good now fer sure. What a team. The Freak. Kung Fu Panda. Fear the Beard. The phenominal Buster Posey. On and on. These guys are fun.

Good point about Bonds being gone. I would love ssing the Giants and Yanks as well. The ghosts of Coogans Bluff will be watching. Last time they met in the series was 1962. Mays , Mantle, Marichal, Ford,McCovey, Maris. These guys played because it was fun. Go Yanks!...Go Giants!

Hey! Those are some cool images, BBB! Never saw those before...I guess a baseball (hmm, any ball?) was preadapted for DEAD imagery. And the "bear" never looked better (I don't go for the bear generally).

Cool.

I'm not too fond of the dancing bear image either, but this one is cool. Im far more a skull and roses type of fan. One of the funnest things about Dead culture for me is the imagery and how its adapted in so many ways, as you alluded too. Here is one fer ya.

Ha! All it needs is a Luke Walton tatoo on the arm for "life imitating art" or however it goes...at least I always think it's bears on his arm? Maybe skeletons; can never remember.

And thanks--yup, that's the right ball alrighty!

Ha! Good idea for the Tattoo. He has basketball skeletons tattooed. I only remember because, such as yourself, I'm a Laker fan.

Shhhh...have you noticed how many folks just love to hate "us" ("them"; Lakers/fans)? Well, sure, here they more or less let us be, BD, Flow and the others with an interest (although I know the current primary troll defn hates KB), but I really have noticed it the past few yrs. It seems to go beyond KB's earlier "issue" (I know, I know, it was no doubt bad)...didn't realize Bynum is out til Dec til recently--are we ever gonna get him healthy? Adn KB had knee surg?? Still think they can pull it off.

I am NOT a baseball fan, BUT had to watch...having grown up with WMays, JMarichal (sp?), and the rest...didn't realize even til a day or two ago that "we" never have won the big one(s). And, not to rain on the old school matchup, but have to root for the Texicans. 39 yrs? Reminds me of the Cardinals. The Bush connection is perhaps disturbing (or do I have that wrong?).

Sorry, baseball dolt of the first order here; though I do know the names of a bunch of 72-74 A's players...now those were great names!
